DEFINITIONS

Child is the singular of Children (as defined below).

Children are individuals who are Minors and not of legal age to provide consent for the collection of their personal information according to the law in their place of residence.

Cookies are small data files that your browser may place on your computer when you visit different websites to mark that you have been there.

Minors are persons under the age of majority in their place of residence.

Non-Personal Information is any information that cannot be associated with an identifiable individual, such as aggregated statistical information (e.g. the average length of time you spend visiting the Site), or other anonymous information, such as the type and version of browser being used to access the Site. Your computer and its operating systems, browsers, and memory contain vast quantities of transaction data and records of your use of it.

Personal Information is any information about you as an identifiable individual, such as your name, your Child’s name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.

 

COOKIES

Cookies and other technologies, such as your device’s unique identifier, are used on our Site to maximize the browsing experience. For example, they allow us to track a browser’s movement through the Site over several sessions. Through these technologies, the Site can recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor’s access to and use of the Site and allows the Site to track usage behaviour that will allow content and service improvement and enable us to tailor our Site and advertising to better match your interests and preferences. We may also use these technologies to allow you to select and prioritize your preferences when you enter our Site. We do not use Cookies or other technologies for online behavioural advertising. No Personal Information is stored in or gathered from these methods. However, you may choose to set up your browser to refuse Cookies or alert you when Cookies are sent. Please note, though, if you refuse Cookies from our Site, some content may be blocked and it may limit our ability to customize and improve our Site features.

 

PRIVACY OF CHILDREN

We encourage parents and guardians to be aware of and participate in their Children’s online activities. Children should not use the Site unsupervised and we ask that you do not allow any Children to directly submit any personal information to us. If you believe your Child has directly provided personal information, and you would like it deleted, please contact us  at info@creaturehero.org. Parents are requested to review this Privacy Policy and discuss its main features with their Children in a manner that the Children will understand. Throughout this Privacy Policy, references to “you” and “your” refer to the user as supervised by their parent or guardian.

 

PARENTAL SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS

There are software programs that allow parents to block certain websites from Children and Minors. Some programs are more flexible than others, so you may want to shop around to find one that you’re comfortable with.

 

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

We may collect two types of information from visitors to the Site: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information. The Site will only collect Personal Information from Children or Minors where it is voluntarily provided by the parent or guardian.

We may also collect information about you from a social network site you may have connected from, in order to provide you with a more personalized experience. In some cases, we will collect psychographic data from third parties that help us better understand our users.

If you send an e-mail to us, or fill out our “feedback” form through the Site, we will collect your e-mail address and the full content of your e-mail, including attached files, and other information you provide. We may use and display your full name and email address when you send an email notification to a friend through the Site or the social network from which you have connected to the Site (such as in an invitation, or when sharing your content).

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION REQUIRED FOR BADGES

A user may be able to apply through the Site for badges in recognition of completing various projects. Only parents or guardians or those who have reached the age of majority in their place of residence may apply for badges on the Site. On the online entry form, we ask for Personal Information such as the entrant’s and applicable Minor’s name and address, and a photograph or receipt confirming the nature of the completed project. Unless otherwise specified, this Personal Information is collected, used and/or disclosed solely for mailing out the requested badge(s).

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION REQUIRED FOR CONTESTS

A user may be able to enter a contest through the Site. Only parents or guardians or those who have reached the age of majority in their place of residence may enter contests on the Site. On the online entry form, we ask for Personal Information such as the entrant’s name and address and applicable Minor’s name and address. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable contest rules or entry forms, this Personal Information is collected, used and/or disclosed solely for the purpose of awarding contest prizes, tracking compliance with the official rules and regulations and for internal feedback purposes. We will only use and disclose a contest winner’s name and photograph after receiving prior written consent from the winner (or their parent or guardian, if the winner is a Minor) and the appropriate release forms are fully completed by a parent or guardian and returned to us.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR CHOICES?

We do not sell or otherwise share Personal Information about individual users without the prior approval of the user. On the page where we ask for that information, there is a prominently displayed method to indicate to us that you do or do not want to receive promotional and/or marketing information about products, services and offerings. It’s always your choice, if you choose not to receive promotional and/or marketing information we consider it an opt-out.  User consent to use Personal Information can be withdrawn at any time by unsubscribing in the manner provided on each piece of promotion and/or marketing information we send to you or by emailing us at info@creaturehero.org.
